Turnip & Mushroom Gratin

1 cup heavy cream
1 clove smashed garlic
1 bay leaf
1 bunch thyme
1 stick butter
1 lb. turnips
½ lb. mushrooms thinly sliced
1 cup Parmesan Cheese

Clean and thinly slice turnips (reserve greens, remove thick stems). Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Steep garlic, bay leaf, thyme in heavy cream for 20 minutes and season with salt. Butter the bottom of a Cast Iron Pan or oven-safe, deep, baking dish and sprinkle with enough parmesan to lightly dust. Place a little bit of the steeped cream, then sliced turnips, followed by sliced mushrooms and turnip greens. Repeat until cast iron is full while sprinkling parmesan in between each step. Bake covered in oven for 40 minutes. Remove foil, sprinkle with remaining parmesan, and bake for 20 more minutes until fork tender. Salt and pepper to taste.
